The NSW Branch of the Australian Marine Sciences Association made a submission to the NSW Government Marine Estate Management Authority on the Proposed Marine Mark in Hawkesbury Shelf Marine Bioregion
Each year AMSA considers nominations for the highest awards given out by the Association; the Jubilee, Technical and Allen Awards.
On behalf of members of AMSA, Will Figueira, President provided comments on the Draft Management Plans for Australia's Marine Parks. To provide the most comprehensive, and specific comments for the submission, the Council asked the State Branches to conduct open, roundtable discussions with their members. The comments are science-based, with reference to peer-reviewed articles where possible, or follow general scientific principles as they apply to the Internation Union for the Conservation of Nature.
